I had pinned this project awhile back and had wanted to make this for S. Specifically for our many trips to Saskatchewan to see my parents. Stacey Vaughn offers a great tutorial to make one (read her updated version for some great tips that I didn't read til after I was finished, haha).
I chose a bright frog prince/castle piece of scrapbook paper from the stash and cut it down to fit the case. I then simply doodled on a title, don't want it mixed up with my dvd's!
Another thing, I didn't personalize it so T can use it when she gets older!
If they fight over it, I'll make another one!
Unlike Stacey's I used double fold bias tape around the top of my pocket and glued into place.
It definitely came in handy on the road trip! S loved it.
She did like to doodle her own creations but to change things up a bit I had to draw a few pics for her to color in (ie. the cat and mouse above). There's only so much scribbling a toddler can do on a blank page!
It was a hit! Definitely worth making if you are traveling with a lil artist!
I also think this would make a great craft for an older child (minus cutting out the dvd circle), I can see myself making this a few years down the road with S and T and their friends!
